What is the Vbeam Perfecta Laser?
Vbeam Perfecta is a top-selling pulsed-dye laser used primarily to treat discoloration on the face and body. It produces intense yet gentle bursts of yellow light which target unwanted blood vessels and pigment in the skin.
When the cells absorb the energy from the Vbeam laser, they heat up and disappear without harming the surrounding area. PDL lasers are regularly used to treat vascular birthmarks on young children because they are so safe and effective.
Made by Syneron Candela, the highly-regarded laser manufacturer responsible for devices like CO2RE and elos plus, Vbeam Perfecta features unrivaled PDL technology. It boasts a patented cooling system, micropulse technology, and customizable treatment settings. These elements make it the ideal gentle laser tool to address many of your top skin concerns.

Is the Vbeam Laser Right for Me?
Dr. Patel will listen to your concerns and determine if the Vbeam laser is the ideal solution. Factors that can impact the effectiveness of a Vbeam treatment include the color, location, and age of your aesthetic issues as well as your skin tone.
The best way to find out if Vbeam is right for you is by speaking to Dr. Patel during an in-office consultation. In some cases, a combination of different laser treatments may be the ideal way to address all of your concerns.
Your Vbeam Treatment and Results
Vbeam sessions typically last for 30 minutes. This time frame can vary depending on the number of concerns you want to address and where they are located.
During the treatment, Dr. Patel will place goggles over your eyes and lightly guide a small laser wand across the surface of your skin. The device will then deliver beneficial micropulses of yellow light. Dr. Patel may treat your entire face before returning to address specific concerns at a higher setting. Or, he may focus on a single area, such as the back of your hands or under your eyes.
Most patients report feeling a painless twinge as the laser fires each short pulse. The patented Dynamic Cooling Device sprays a soothing mist before each pulse, protecting and soothing your skin throughout the treatment.
You will likely notice visible results immediately after a Vbeam treatment. Your skin may look brighter, tighter, and more even-toned. Depending on your skin condition, you may need a total of 3-5 treatments to experience the optimal benefits that Vbeam has to offer.
After your session, you may experience very mild redness or swelling. In some cases, a laser bruise known as purpura may appear. This mark will usually fade within three to five days.
